When Temperatures Drop, Your Pipes Could Break!

Here is How to Prevent an Expensive Repair…

It may not be a wet winter so far, but it has been a cold one. This same time last year, we had ZERO nights at or below freezing. This year, we have already had 4!

When temperatures drop, it is possible that your pipes can break. Frozen pipe repair can be a major hassle. Here are some simple tips to help prevent that from happening.

What Had Happen Was…

When you go to bed at night, your home plumbing pipes still have some standing water in them. If temperatures get low enough, that water can freeze. When frozen, water expands, and without anywhere to go, that frozen water can actually crack or burst your pipe. According to home insurance reports, water damage from a burst pipe is one of the most common claims. It is also a pricey one, with an average bill of $5,000!

How to Identify a Frozen Pipe

The obvious sign will be massive flooding. However, that typically occurs AFTER a frozen pipe has thawed. Here are some telltale signs that you might have a frozen pipe:

  1. Slow faucet (trickle), or no flow at all
  2. Toilet slow to refill or won’t refill

Shut Off Your Water!

If there has been freezing temperatures, and your water flow is slow or non-existent, the first thing you should do is turn off the main water supply to the house. This is the best and easiest way to prevent extensive water damage if you in fact have a frozen pipe, and it bursts.
